I have used my fair share of tablets (Android, iPads, Playbook) and though I doubt that the Asus Transformer Prime (ATP) will win over many of the Apple lovers, I have to say that this is without doubt the best tablet I have ever used. The ATP is sleek, slim and sturdy. The materials used to build it give it the quality feel you would expect in a device of this price range. The performance is second to none. The battery life is better than advertised and the GPS is functional if not phenomenal. I have not had any of the wifi issues reported, but I did do the squeeze trick before turning it on the first time so that may be part of the reason. ICS is far smoother on the ATP than it is on any other Android tablet. Once connected to the keyboard dock this awesome tablet becomes a great netbook with even better battery life. If you're in the market for a tablet this one is at least one worth looking at, but if you know you want an Android the ATP is the one to buy. I have not been so happy with a purchase in a while.
Ok, first things first: THIS IS NOT AN EASY FIX!!! For that matter, it isn't even a weight loss plan, per se. This is a choice to learn about your body, and it ain't for sissies! My husband and I have been at this for a month now.
We both are moderately overweight (20-30 pounds to lose), but not obese. We are moderately active (but I don't like exercise until it's over). I am a 39 yo F, had a hysterectomy 18 months ago and discovered that things just weren't as easy as before. My "go-to" food choices for maximum weight loss and health weren't working, and I had ZERO energy. I had also recently (the last 3 years) been suffering from increasingly annoying year-round allergies, so much so that I was taking Allegra-D daily. I also suffered from headaches (almost weekly), body aches, and overall lethargy and slight depression. Now I realize this means nothing to those who don't know me, but depression has never been my bag (I usually lean toward rage with slightly psychotic manic tendencies! haha) so this was probably the worst thing going for me. I refused to accept that all of this could be attributed to my hysterectomy, and was even more adamant that I was not going to accept this as my new way of "living" - because it wasn't, really. I'm a generally positive gal, and I was proud of my energy levels. So what the heck happened - and how do I "fix" it?
Then I saw Lyn-Genet Recitas on Dr. Oz (I know, sounds so cliche') but I loved her message - and I especially loved her data and background.
The detox is gentle (well, as gentle as a detox can be) but if you've done years (decades?) of damage, you'll suffer healing crisis. You just will, and there's no amount of consoling that can be done about it. Buy toilet paper and get ready to rest. And when she recommends SAM-e and MSM? She isn't kidding. Take it! It truly helps. I haven't taken anything except Tylenol just once, the second day without coffee, and that was more for my husband and children's sanity than mine, because the migraine was borderline debilitating.
The program is heavy with veggies, and if you want to see someone doing "The Plan" roll their eyes, just mention "Spicy Vegetarian Soup" after a week or two in. But there's a method to the madness, and a reason for everything. Love yourself enough to hang in - but commit 100% or it won't work as well! You have to journal your weight as "data" - nothing more, nothing less. Weight increase is viewed as an inflammatory response to an new food, or a mis-step in working the plan. This is one of the issues I have with the plan. If you're doing it as a team, because results are so individualized, there will come a time when you will have a response to something and need a rest day, while your partner will not react and will expect to move on to the next wonderful thing like cheese or red wine. When you say, "No, I need a rest day" to a 235 pound carnivorous man when he's been looking forward to steak, you better run like hell.
There will be days that mess with your mind and depress you (I am sensitive to bread. *sigh*) and days that elate you (Chocolate? Heck yeah!). There will also be days you do stuff wrong and end up confused, so you have to repeat the process. It's slow. It's arduous. It's worth it.
I feel great. My skin and hair look better. I am gradually regaining my energy. I haven't taken any pills (except my SAM-e, MSM, & B12 supplements). I drink my water. I've lost 9 pounds. My husband has lost 15 (grrr, men!) and has made peace with his inability to handle pork. Weird. We flew through restaurant day, and ended up losing a pound eating french fries because THANK YOU GOD I can still eat potatoes, but I had a patty melt with no bread. Get the picture? It's all about educating yourself, so you can make better choices. And the best part? I don't measure, weigh, or obsess about portions. I do make sure I eat tons of salads - especially if I'm eating a food that would be traditionally inflammatory for me. And for the first time in 18 months, I feel like there's some hope. I'm seeing the "Reverse" gear on my scale.
I got my Mom going on The Plan. She's on day 2, and feeling like someone beat her with a baseball bat. She's already tired of carrots, and her house smells like onions and garlic. Yep, sounds about right. So again I'll stress: if you're looking for something geared for just weight loss, this probably isn't for you (initially). But if you're willing to put some work into it and get centered on yourself, you can really answer some questions and ultimately give yourself a better shot at long-term success.
Sidenote that's cool? I'm on twitter, and so is the author (Lyn-Genet Recitas). I've tweeted her questions about the book, and holy cow she responds! I went through a bout of stomach virus during my testing, and because of what I knew about my reactivity to oats, I avoided oatmeal and bananas (formerly my go-to) and saved myself so much additional pain! I sailed through it in 24 hours, while other around me were down 3-4 days.
Ok, I'm done now. :) Good luck!!
I've always wondered why I can't maintain a stable weight no matter what I try (working out, changing my eating habits, drinking plenty of water, etc). She explains that you need to figure out what your body needs and will utilize. Everyone is different and every food reacts differently to each person. You have to figure out what works for you so you don't sabotage your own attempts at getting fit.
She helps guide you through the first 20 days (and afterwards) by helping you determine which foods work for you (less reactive) and which ones will cause you to gain weight no matter what you do (more reactive).
Written in layman's terms (mostly) and easy to follow. I like the fact that she asks you to read the entire book before starting the program. I just finished it last night. I'll post an update once I've started the program.
Son, we live in a world that has bananas, and those bananas have to be sliced by men with the the Hutzler 571 banana slicer. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for the bananas, and you curse the Hutzler 571. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That evenly sliced bananas, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me slicing bananas, you need me slicing bananas. We use words like Hutzler, bananas, slicer. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent enriching breakfast cereals. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very sliced bananas I provide, and then questions the manner in which I slice them. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a Hutzler 571, and start slicing. Either way, I don't give a d*mn what you think you are entitled to!
Excellent view of history during the life of Jesus. Seems that politics has not changed much since then. The book paints a picture of what it was like to live during those times. Not a religious text, but more historical, you will learn things about Jesus and the familiar names you have heard mentioned all your life. This book filled in the blanks for me. I highly recommend it.
